For anyone who's ever dreamed of living out the Yellowjackets survival experience - but without the cannibalism, tripping and mysterious rituals (or maybe with - we're not here to judge) - now you can, as Variety revealed today that Showtime are bringing a three day interactive popup to Austin’s SXSW festival.

The pop-up, dubbed “Camp Yellowjackets” will open the first weekend of the festival, from Friday, March 10 to Sunday, March 12, at the Fair Market in Austin. The installation kicks off with a private opening event on Friday, and then will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. CT on Saturday and Sunday.

According to Variety 'the “Camp Yellowjackets” experience will create the look of a 1990s-era summer camp that has been abandoned. Visitors will be able to spot hidden Easter eggs from the show while exploring the campsite. Among the activities on site will be ax throwing, BBQ and specialty cocktails.'

Puja Vohra, executive VP of marketing at Showtime Networks, had this to say about the exciting upcoming event:

Camp Yellowjackets is an exclusive, excitingly unsettling, Yellowjackets-themed destination [...] It’s been our passion and our privilege to open up the world of this amazing series to viewers everywhere, and we can’t wait for “Campers” to immerse themselves in clues of what really happened out there.

The Emmy-nominated show has been a Showtime hit since its premiere in 2021, starring Melanie Lynskey (The Last of Us), Juliette Lewis (From Dusk Till Dawn), Christina Ricci (Wednesday) and Tawny Cypress (House of Cards) as adult friends who as teenagers survived a horrific plane crash in the remote northern wilderness. Elijah Wood, Lauren Ambrose and Simone Kessell are set to join the cast in Season 2, which will air on Showtime on March 24th.
